Freeman On The Land Philosophy (FOTL)! What is A Free Man On The Land?

A philosophical change in the way we perceive the Law and Politics!

You are owned by the Corporation of the United States.

Your Social Security number is your slave number.

You must borrow money in order to pay your taxes.

You are owned by the banks! You are owned by the Government.

You are granted the privilege to vote.

You must pay for Licences to engage in legal Acts.

You obey your Corporate Masters.

You follow and obey their Laws.

You consent to stand under Statutes, Acts and By-Laws.

You agree to Register your property with the Government.

You agree and consent to pay Taxes.

You agree and consent to provide funding for wars.

You accept vaccinations and believe that you are inoculated for your protection.


You have agreed to Register your motorized vehicle.

You are nothing but the Registered Keeper of the vehicle.

You have consented to Registering your children.

You are only the Registered Keeper of your offspring.

Scroll to Continue

You do not own a Registered vehicle.

You do not own your Registered children.

The Act of Registration hands over ownership.

You do not even own your own life, you are property.

You are a slave!

You have a slave number, it is also known as a Social Security Number!

You are a human being. Your existence does not reside in a name or a number!

You Are A Slave Part 1

But that is not what I was taught in school?

If you have come to the realization that everything you thought you knew was wrong, it is not your fault. You have been taught lies. You have been led to believe that these lies were truth.

You have been taught by your parents, teachers, media, even history books. You have been misled, you have not been told the Truth!

Everything you have been led to believe is real is nothing more then fiction.

Everything that you have been shown is really nothing more then illusion.

You have human Rights which are unalienable. They are not granted nor can they be taken away, they just ARE! Mans rights are endowed through his Creation, they do not come from a fictional Corporation created by man!

You Are a Slave Part 2

If you had a choice, would you choose Freedom or Enslavement?

Would you choose to have your Rights reduced to privileges given to you by those in control, or would you prefer to be Free!

You do have a choice!

The majority of people who remain unaware of their situation are happy to have their Rights come from the Government.

If this was not true then Government would cease to exist!

After years of research done by many people there has been discovered these simple conclusions:

LAW is merely fiction intertwined among other fictions.

TAX is another fiction. Does anyone understand the Tax Laws.

RELIGION is fiction. It is used as a device to control masses of people.

BANKING is another fiction as it is based on a worthless currency.

MEDIA is also a fictitious entity. It is a propaganda tool also used for control and instill fear.

GOVERNMENT is the ultimate fiction. It is used to force by coercion and duress the people that make up the society.


Contracts and the Government!

Government is free to enter into contracts with any entity, whether it be a human, a company or even other Governments. The issue of a Government contract is that it does not involve either you or me, we were not a Party that has endorsed the contract, therefore we cannot be bound by it.

The only entities that are bound by such a contract would be the Government and any other Party which has endorsed the contract. If the Government enters into a contract or treaty with another country, neither population of either country is bound in any way by the terms of the contract.

The only parties that are bound by such contracts is the Governments that have entered into them! Not the People!

The term Freemen (also includes Freewoman) are not obligated to society simply because we have not entered into any contracts with society!

"Quod attinet ad jus civile, servi pro nullis habentur, non tamen et jure naturali;
quia quod ad jus naturale attinet, omnes homines aequales sunt."

‘Before the Civil law a slave is nothing, but not before the Natural law;
for in the eye of Natural law all men are equal.’

There is a Natural Law which is much more admired over any Civil Law. Natural Law was the primary law of our ancestors, and which has given civilization the gift of Philosophy.

What is a Freeman?

All human beings have been created as equals. All Rights are derived from the fact that the human has been created.

We are all private human beings, with a Right to pursue a life of Freedom and Happiness.

There is nothing that can stand between you and your human Rights.

There is no man who has the ability to create rules or laws for the individual.

There is no man who has the right to demand payment in any form from another human.

A Freeman does not Register anything.

Freemen do not Register to vote.

Freemen only pay taxes that they consent to be responsible for.

Freemen will not stand under charges derived through Statutes or Acts

Freemen do not need licences to engage in lawful activities.

Freemen have no obligation to swear fealty to a country, flag or government.

Freemen do not consent to be governed by Corporations or any other legal fiction.

Freemen stand under Natural Law.

Freemen do not belong to Collectives.

Freemen do not belong to any political party.

Freemen do not engage in organized Religion.

This does not mean that Freemen do not believe in the concept of Spirituality.

Freemen are Sovereign individuals.

The Philosophy of Liberty

What are you?

You are an animal. You are a living breathing human being. You are a carbon based life form!

We are all created equal and it is impossible for your equals to hold any power over you! The only power another human can have over you is through your consensual agreement to be controlled.

One way that men have used to gain control over other humans is through the creation of Statute Law!

This gives them control over YOU!

There are men who will mandate that you are required to hand your wealth over to them.

These men are called either gangsters or politicians!

All Sovereign individuals stand independent of all Laws, except those that fall under the Laws of Nature or the Law of Physics. A Sovereign cannot be held accountable to institutions that were created by other men without giving consent!

Natural Law is very simple:

Do no harm to others.

Respect the property of others, do not steal.

Remain honest in all contracts. Commit no Fraud!



There is only one form of Government that can be considered a lawful Government. This form of Government consists of a Representative one.

Representation can only exist if the representation is of mutual consent.

Consent must be given freely, it cannot be obtained through coercion or duress.

Any Statute can be defined as a Legislative rule which is given the force of Law.

Society is created by a number of people who join together through mutual consent to engage in deliberations to determine and act for a common goal which will be beneficial to all members of the society.


I have written this Philosophy, it is not a product of any organized effort. I stand alone, I do not have a Registered motor vehicle. I also do not run afoul of any Laws. I remain true to my word in all contracts. I do not seek to harm any other human being. I do not wish to take anothers property from them.

I do not wish to achieve anything of value for nothing. I have no desire to seek a Treasury Bond with my strawman's name upon it. I pay the debts that I have agreed to pay.

I do not pay income taxes. I also do not accept Federal Reserve Notes as payment for my services. I work for food and shelter. I am very happy with this arrangement. I am a Freeman. I do not answer to another human being. The only authority another has over me is through my consent only.

I am not asking anyone to follow my example. I have simply laid out my Philosophy, perhaps to encourage others to educate themselves and make their own decisions concerning FOTL.

Thank you for reading my article. I hope it has inspired some and encouraged others.

Be safe, be smart, and remain true to yourself!

When a police officer asks me ''do i understand'' and i reply yes, am i in fact agreeing to stand under him in law?

The level of control is rising. The United States is now officially a battlefield. The NDAA bill has given the Federal Government powers that can only be labeled as oppressive and tyrannical.


WE ARE FREEMEN/WOMEN! We need to unite under the same construct, we need to unite against a Federal Government out of control!

Nonviolent rebellion and civil disobedience is the only weapons we need to take back control of our great nation!

Vote with your Federal Reserve notes. Learn how to say "No, I do not consent! Understand that you are a Sovereign individual and not required to bow down to authority that does not exist!

Steve Mitchell from Cambridgeshire on November 27, 2011:

Oh wow, I know now why you have over 100.000 page views. This is a cool hub. I agree that we are all slaves with a social security number. The favourite con from UK government is trying to change pension payments by cutting them due to the economic climate. Strikes by teachers are going ahead next week because of it.

We are heading for a winter of discontent here.

Quest on October 27, 2011:

Does anyone know if I can use the Freeman common law concept to get out of paying property tax? I have thought of starting my own religion, but that needs to be approved. Also considered holding it in a land trust of offshore corporation. Not sure any of these ideas would work. Does anyone have any insight?

Wayne on October 22, 2011:

Mistake in "You are owned by the Corporation" i am not onwed by any corporation at all i is equal to you i was given a social contracts at birth (Birth Cert) which i have sent back to a further establishement the registry office ltd I do not rememeber confirming my consent to such a document at birth I could not write? i could not read? I could not be educated to understand i chose not to go to Nursery? I do however find this under common law as social abuse, mental abuse, and financial abuse, where common law is trumps again

This is very informative. In my research, I've found that the U.S. Citizenship is what needs to get can check out A Journey to Freedom, the story of my friend Burt, at Musicians4Freedom(dot)com. Thanks for your activism!

jimmylesaint It works for me, I do not ask anyone to follow me. This lifestyle is not for everyone, that is for sure but before I ask the government for a handout I would prefer to do what I can to remain individually self sufficient.

jimmylesaint from Metropolis of Life on June 04, 2011:

Whilst i understand the theory behind your "philosophy" it is not practical for everyone. Imagine if all of us worked for shelter and food, whose work would be worth more and how much food and who would provide the shelter and all the food?:) So maybe hundreds of years ago it was fine. But in today's age with the overcrowded world as it is, the system we live by, unfree system is to allow us more freedom then if we all tried to live hand to mouth as freemen/women.

A lovely philosophy/ideal but out of touch and out of date.

Jeremey from Arizona on October 21, 2010:

absolutly incedible. I sometimes refer to the general public as "the everyman", in a way seperating myself from them in regards to understanding the views you express above, I myself may be a "freeman"! Very interesting hub. I can only imagine the varied comments that could arise!
